  • Currently registered QMUL home students and recent graduates who finished their course under two years ago can apply for any of our awards.
  • International students who have Tier 4 (General) Student immigration permission are restricted from the Try It and Grow It awards as they are not permitted to be self-employed, but are eligible to apply via the Build It route as this award supports pre-trade prototype development.
